Hi Folks, here's the new site....
Hi again folks,
Well, the weekend of gigs seemed to be ok and the New Beach Club at Pett Level went well enough that I'll be playing on New Year's Eve there, that's December 31st folks! Though it's a club, you're welcome there and I have to say that it's one of the most relaxed places I play so I hope to see you there to bring in the new year. This week on Saturday I'll be at the excellent Beau Nash in Tunbridge Wells again, starting at 9 p.m. I haven't been there since the last time so I'm hoping for a good evening. I'll be premiering a new song and I have high hope for it, see what you think! Nothing then until Thursday 22nd when I'll be with Titus at the FILO in Hastings Old Town. They have their own brewery and I believe the produce is rather good. By then, I hope to be in France but will be returning for gigs. Then on Saturday 15th December I have a private party followed by, on Sunday December 16th, I'll be at the Excellent Queens Head in sunny Icklesham (4 p.m. start) for another rockfest there. Lastly, before the New Year, will be the swansong for Titus at the Jenny Lind in the Old Town, Hastings, on Sunday December 23rd. Check with the venue for the start time. My little problem of recent times has made me realise how much I love these gigs and I won't be holding back.
It'd be great to see you at any or all of them!
Cheers for now,
For the first time in many years I have to cancel all of my gigs, Mick Mepham, Titus and Loose Endz, for a while, as I've had a small problem with my health. My profuse apologies to everyone but I have to get better before I can play live again. I'm hoping that I'll be fit again by October. In the meantime - here is some light music ……..
As soon as I'm going again I'll let you know.
Cheers and thanks for your understanding,
A local gig tomorrow at the Holbeach Food and Drink Festival from 1 p.m. Great nosh in vast amounts there......
Then on Sunday I'll be at Pub 31 at Winchelsea Beach starting at 1.30 p.m. There seems to be an outbreak of afternoon gigs across the country. I hope to see you at one or t'other.
Cheers for now,
Sorry about the recent gap in service - my fault entirely. I'm not used to the steam-powered interweb thingy.....
Tonight's Loose Endz gig in Chatham is now not on because of a cock-up on the booking front but next Friday the 4th at the Peacock in Gravesend is fine, see you there.
A couple of gigs have 'flooded' in and I'm now at the Spalding Beer Festival at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 27th and also at the Holbeach Food and Drink festival on Saturday June 30th, time to be confirmed.
I had the pleasure of being on Spitfire radio, an online station, last evening. Have a listen on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m.
Cheers for now and I'll see you soon at a gig near you!
Hi folks, due to the weather, Titus will not be playing at the Crown and Anchor, Eastbourne, tonight but will hopefully see you at a revised date! Stuck in the studio this week and going nowhere outside. Good for the writing and recording though....
My next gigs are on Friday 16th March with Loose Endz at the Gravesend Boat, Gravesend, followed by myself at the Beau Nash, Tunbridge Wells the next night, Saturday 17th March. Hurrah and Huzzah.
Keep warm people and I'll see you when the sun comes out again....
Waheyyyyy!!! Couple of real fun gigs this last couple of days thanks to the good people of the Peacock, Gravesend and Sittingbourne. Voice now shot to bits!! This week I'll be playing with Titus at the FILO in Hastings Old Town. Hope the voice comes back in time...... No new year gig for the first time in about 20 years.... Doh!
Stop press: I'm at a new gig this Saturday 30th. It's the Canal Tavern Pub in Gravesend and there's a hog roast as well as the music. This is the venue's first gig so I'm going to give them my best and I hope you'll be able to support them and me.
Thanks to everyone at the Pelham in Gravesend, the Royal Oak in Tonbridge and the Queen's Head, Icklesham for being so much fun at last week's gigs. I had a lot of fun too and lost a few gallons of sweat into the bargain!! Onwards and upwards to the Beau Nash in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday 16th this week. The following week is back to Hastings with Titus from 4 - 6 at the Jenny Lind in the Old Town. There are updates in the gig guide for upcoming shows.
Cheers for now, music lovers,
I'll be at the Pelham Arms, Old West road, Gravesend on Saturday September 2nd i.e. Saturday week! It's an 8.30 start so, if you can make it, I'll hope to see you all there then.
This week on Sunday afternoon, 4 - 6 p.m, I'll be at the wunnerful Carlisle on Hastings sea front. I haven't been there since the last time .... Again, I hope to see loads of people there.
Cheers for now,
Here's a quick update on Saturday 19ths gig with Loose Endz at the Pelham, Gravesend. It's a 2 p.m. start! See you there....
Really enjoyable gigs lately at the Castle, Pevensey and in Gravesend. More this week with Loose Endz, at the Pelham in Gravesend on Saturday 19th. That's followed by Sunday 27th at the Carlisle in Hastings between 4 - 6 p.m. Note the earlier time on the 27th. Can't wait!!
Many thanks to all the fun people at the Holbeach Food Fest which was most enjoyable. One extra from that is that I'll be playing at Holbeach St Marks Village Hall on October 21st so put it in your diaries now!!
That's all for now folks.
Back again after a short hiatus. I finally realized that I should update this from the top of the page and not the bottom, DOH!!!!!
New gigs are on the Shows page plus other bits and pieces.
If you're in Holbeach this Saturday lunchtime I'll be playing at the Food Festival from Midday until 2 p.m. I hope you can make it.
Cheers for now,
Hi there everybody,
Happy New Year one and all.
Thanks to everyone who came to the New Beach Club at Pett Level on the 31st. It was a great evening for me and, I hope, for all those who were there. I've recovered now and in time for this Friday's gig at the Punchbowl in Spalding (9 - 11 p.m.) Next week at the Queen's Head, Icklesham (4 - 6 p.m.) will hopefully be a cracker too. I wish you all well for 2017 and albums will soon be available (at last) so maybe it will be a good year for me too!!
All the best for now and cheers!
Speaking for myself, I've had a lot of good gigs on my own and with Titus. Recording wise, things are coming on and the first of 2 acoustic albums is nearly ready for release. I'd like to thank everyone who has come to the gigs and given me encouragement to keep going a big thank you. It's the same for all musicians - if there's no audience there's no point. Cheers to you all and have a good holiday and return refreshed in the new year.
This is my new site and I hope it will be more efficient, informative and useful for you all. I'm now living in Lincolnshire but I'm still doing gigs all over so don't be afraid to get in touch for bookings. This will be the site for the rock that I write, produce, record, gig and sell. It will also include Titus information as well as featuring my own acoustic music as well!! There will be merch available in all sections soon.
A big welcome to the site and please let me know (politely) what you think, any ideas and any comments or reflections you may have. I hope you like it all! Cheers all, Mick.
A quick hurrah before next year.
Both Barrels, Mick Mepham
Loads of local talent making money for MacMillans.
First one at this venue and I'm looking forward to it loads. Sunday lunchtime from 1.30, woohooo!

This is at the Holbeach Food Festival in Carters Park behind Tesco's car park. If it's as sunny as last year I'll be glad to be in the marquee again. Yayyyyyyyy.
